Choice, mate!

Author: Helen

I just saw a Catalyst program on intelligent design.

Brendan Nelson: “It’s about choice, reasonable choice.”

That word again. What with WorkChoices and all, “choice” is becoming the Orwellianest word of this decade. There’s a poll on the Catalyst site, “should ID be taught in science classrooms?” Go there and add to the No vote, for your kids’ sakes. Or if you’re not going to have any, just do it to give Brendan the shits- it’s worth it.

It was interesting to see “The Wedge Strategy”, the document circulated by the Discovery centre, an anti-evolution think tank. You can find it here. It’s like a conspiracy theory, only real. Unfortunately. This is the DVD the Discovery institute’s using as the thin end of the wedge. Keep an eye out for sightings in your local school or library.


Now I’m going to write to Brendan Nelson demanding equal time for the Pastafarian interpretation of the origins of life on earth.

    I think our cousins in New Zealanders would really enjoy the “choice bro” policies of the “glorious” Howard Government. Maybe we should export them.

    Holy bollocks! Both you and I watched the same channel at the same time and had eerily similar conclusions.

    There must be a designer!

    Saw a Mrs Wainwright film clip on Chan 31 Nu Country tonight – nice song.

    No, Flute, Brendan’s sending mind control messages to you, using his Emeter. (Which, naturally, will get equal time with neurophysiology in our best universities.)

    The regular drummer is the one with all the hair.

  • I totally love the flying spaghetti monster.

    I put another image, from the game, on my site which looks specifically at the rise of the religious literalists in the public sphere- in Australia, and wherever else they’re on the move.

    I hope you get a chance to have a look!
